Work with Breakthrough Summebridge

There are several ways to get involved with BTSB and directly support our students! 

Summer Opportunities:

  • High School Seniors & College Students can apply to be a Teaching Fellow! 
    • Teaching Fellows (TFs) get to experience what teaching is like over the summer! TFs are trained in strong teaching and learning practices. With the support of the Breakthrough training and our Instructional Coaches, TFs teach a small academic class of students over the summer, make lesson plans, and get regular observation feedback. Outside of academics, TFs also coordinate events for students, run All School Meetings (ASM), teach an elective class, and more! This is an immersive experience that requires an 8-week commitment.  
  • Professional Teachers can apply to be an Instructional Coach!
    • Instructional Coaches support the learning and growth of our Teaching Fellows throughout the summer. They revise our Teaching Fellow’s lesson plans, regularly observe their classroom teaching, and provide regular feedback. Oftentimes, they may also become personal mentors for our Teaching Fellows who are learning how to teach for the very first time! Our ICs are the backbone of our program and help BTSB inspire the next generation of teachers. 

 

School Year Opportunities:

  • High School Students can volunteer as tutors!
    • During the school year, BTSB students can come to campus for Homework Help on Thursdays after school. After completing mandatory tutor training, our tutors meet with students in a small group setting to support them with their homework. Tutors may also support our student's organizational skills and overall academic success. 
    • Tutoring hours count as volunteer hours. Tutoring can help UHS students fulfill their “Community Engagement” requirement.
  • UHS Juniors and Seniors can apply to become Teaching Fellows through the BOOM, Dynamite! 
    • Academic Year Teaching Fellows (TF) are trained during REd Blocks in strong teaching practices. During the academic year, they actually get to teach their own classroom with a teaching partner. With their partner, TFs make lesson plans and teach project-based learning curriculum to BTSB students on Wednesdays after school. Teaching Fellows get regular feedback on their lesson plans and teaching observations from Instructional Coaches. 
    • Completing a Teaching Fellow during the academic year fulfills the “Community Engagement” requirement for UHS students.
